Earth Court Frat House

From MahouMUSH
Jump to: navigation, search
Allied Faction: Unaffiliated
Allied Groups: Shitennou, Inner Senshi, Médecins Sans Partisanerie
Location Type: Residence
Grid Locale: Uminari City - Residential District - Luxury Highrise

BUILDING & ACCESS: The Earth Court Frat House is actually four interconnected penthouse apartments on the 47th floor of a luxury highrise in Uminari City. Each of the four sides has its own long balcony connecting to at least the living room, and the one generally in use as an outside entrance for magical girls and boys is the one with a rosebush sitting out on it that has the soul of a lost alien boy who's finally found a home. It tries to be a safe space for magical people to heal no matter their faction, and also attempts to be a diplomatically neutral ground for those seeking mediation, but it is also a home, and people can get kicked out for being bullies within its walls (or on its roof).

The bottom floor of the luxury highrise actually contains a full gym, olympic-sized pool, and minimall, but the concierge's desk is in the lobby and easy to find. The locks on the four apartment doors in the elevator lobby on the top floor aren't usually in use, but that's because the top floor needs an actual key used in the elevator to get to, which the concierge does for people on a specified-in-advance list; people not on the list can ask and the concierge will call up if aware someone is home. Helpfully, there's a taped-up sign on one of the top floor hall doors that says 'USE THIS ONE'. (The laminated sign containing the apartment rules is actually inside the door, though. Inside the doors to all the apartments. And at the balconies.)

1. No kidnapping.
2. No murder.
3. Mamoru gets player 1 always.
4. No fighting/attacking unless it is horseplay, magical or otherwise.
5. Factions and shoes left at threshold.
6. No Witch labyrinths.
7. No explosives or arson.
8. No monologues between the hours of 1 AM and 8 AM.
9. Clean up your own messes.
10. Do your own dishes and laundry.
11. Maximum length of stay for genetically bipedal guests: one week, except by special dispensation.

ROOF: Since the boys of the Earth Court take up the entire top floor of the highrise, it's really no surprise that they also have exclusive roof rights. In the summer it's a flood of greenery, the rooftop garden lush and verdant, with some flowers and herbs in wheeled planters and some in stationary beds near the edges. Arches and shrubbery can be moved into different configurations, widening the space or making it more labyrinthine and private. In the winter it's only the evergreens that provide shelter from the wind, and they can be moved to circle a smallish plastic greenhouse tent that covers the glass and wrought-iron picnic table and chairs, and which contains several small space heaters with solar panels and rechargeable batteries. One corner of the enormous roof is dedicated to Nephrite's telescope, and someone's wheeled some trees over there to provide a windbreak, which can easily be moved out of the way. Strings of LEDs demarcate the edges, just in case anyone up there happens to be drunk enough and tall enough to actually manage stumbling themselves over the ledge in the dark.

GENERAL: It's a spacious place, airy and high-ceilinged, and the sun streams in through the tall picture windows and the wide doors to the balcony during the day; at night it's the moonlight and the stars, or the city lights. The views of the city are breathtaking. Apartment rules are clearly posted by the door and next to the balcony door on the outside as well; there's a bench in the genkan for shoe removal ease. Despite the mural-painted walls and mosaic-tiled floor and high price tag, there's evidence of multiple people living here and a fair amount of nonresident traffic: it looks like a home that gets a lot of guests. There's furniture scattered around in relatively useful configurations; there's a roll-up projector screen set up over some of the floor-to-ceiling picture windows with an assortment of videogame consoles and a few remote controls in a box next to the pile. A laptop sits on a desk by the balcony, and a telescope on a stand just inside its door. Various doors and corners indicate it's even bigger than it looks from here. Wherever there's room and it doesn't block mural-- which in some cases means the walls open up like secret panels-- there are bookcases. What should be a dining room table is covered with textbooks generally, and half-finished projects; most eating seems to take place either in the kitchen or at the coffee-table. The kitchen is painted in sunny summer colors and it looks like it sees daily use; the spice rack is no longer arranged alphabetically. The refrigerator seems to be a communal bulletin board.
MOSAIC: The bedrooms have hardwood floors with the most durable finish that money can buy and the kitchen and bathrooms have patterned linoleum, but the floor of the living room is covered in an intricate mosaic that seems to be modeled on the designs of what's survived of the early Eastern Roman Empire, lavish and detailed and polychromatic. The designs consist of interlocking geometric tesserae, with a predominant motif of foliage within the borders. It manages not to be dizzyingly busy to the eye, and it's coated with magically reinforced lamination to protect the grout from errant bloodstains.
MURAL: A mural covers 3 walls of this apartment's living room area, with the 4th wall being the balcony and windows and the view of Tokyo's skyline. From up in one corner it starts as a deep dark night sky, with constellations mapped out in twinkle lights that sparkle against the rich blue velvet of the night sky which continues down the wall. The color lightens through shifting blues into a waterfall crossing that wall, with bright spray and rolling surf all painted in detail into the mural. The wall facing the view of Tokyo has the water of the waterfall becoming a flat expanse of ocean with the city artfully reflected from the actual view onto the painted still water, with a harbour scene coming onto the last wall. That final wall begins with the harbour, with a tall ship looking ready for pirates, leading up into a garden scene, with a castle off in the distance, and a garden in front with a garden full of riotous colourful flowers, mostly roses, but not entirely. A tree comes up the side of the wall, the trunk and branches sculpted into the wall, shading some of the garden from that side's brilliant blue sky.

NEPHRITE'S APARTMENT: Here be dragons. No really, we're not sure if he does dishes, and he doesn't like wearing pants.

KUNZITE'S & ZOISITE'S APARTMENT: This is the fancy one.

JADEITE'S APARTMENT: Generally used for party spillover when not being used for complicated Jadeite projects that sit around half-completed, this is actually literally the most normal of the four. It looks like an actual regular penthouse apartment instead of either a giant man-cave, a royally-appointed suite of terrifically beautiful items, or a mosaic-floored and mural-walled Mahou Shoujo Grand Central Station.

Strength in Pain January 1st, 2016 Jadeite gets Moon Healing Escalated and the Senshi fight... but, uh, they don't fight Jadeite. Or a monster. And now they have a puppy.
Beautiful Dreams and Waking Nightmares January 6th, 2016 Usagi dreams of a past life. Kunzite teaches her about days and nights, seasons and lands, and children. Endymion arrives and Kunzite slinks to the shadows to get cavities and the couple's sweet sappiness. Then Usagi wakes up, has a cape on her, and obviously, Kunzite is a Creeper.
Kunzite's a Creeper!!! January 7th, 2016 After a pleasant dream, Usagi wakes up to discover Kunzite is a creeper who likes to watch young girls sleep. She and Jadeite hightail it out of Mamoru's apartment! (Disclaimer: Kunzite strongly protests the inaccuracy of this synopsis.)
It Really Is Grand Central January 14th, 2016 Kyouko comes to Mamoru's empty apartment looking for Jadeite. Sayaka comes to Mamoru's empty apartment looking for Kyouko. Kunzite comes to Mamoru's empty apartment looking for NOT TWO PUELLA MAGI, WAIT WHAT, WHY ARE YOU EVEN. Surprisingly little violence ensues. Also, Kyouko accidentally proves once again that she really is an honorary one of Mamoru's guys.
Knight of Endurance February 4th, 2016 Makoto drops by to see Jadeite with cookies and awkward questions, and learns a little about what he has endured and what he continues to endure. (Technically in Mamoru's temporary apartment.)
For Just a Moment March 9th, 2016 Usagi and Mamoru get back from D-point. (Technically in Mamoru's temp apartment, not the ECFH.)
Rei of Sunshine March 15th, 2016 Shortly after D-Point, after Makoto leaves and Mamoru nopes away from People, Rei visits next. More crying, more hugs, and it ends with a sleepy girl pile. (Technically at Mamoru's temp apartment.)

Fridges, With Bonus Horror April 3rd, 2016 Makoto has been volunteered kitchen help. It's Kunzite. This is inevitably kind of weird, but oddly practical in places. It's almost reassuring, up till Makoto asks a question that turns out to get her an answer she didn't really want...
A Rather Pointed Subject April 3rd, 2016 Usagi and Mamoru are tired of Usagi having dark energy horrible stuck in her back and nothing they've tried thus far has worked. Usagi's also worried about Mamoru, and Mamoru's worried about Usagi, and all in all, there's a whole lot of worry. But also cute.
Not With Haste April 9th, 2016 There's been something on Mamoru's mind. Usagi is a saint.
Kintsugi: You Forgave and I Won't Forget April 10th, 2016 The world is new, and Kunzite isn't sure where he fits in it anymore. After Naru and Usagi leave, he and Mamoru have a lot to talk about, and they do. At great length. The buffer broke three times in total.
The Truth About Magic Stuff April 10th, 2016 After Naru tells Mamoru off for talking about magic in the supermarket and Kyouko goes to work, they go home with Kunzite and Naru runs the world's most polite interrogation session while they put away groceries and Mamoru sits on the counter doing nothing. Then Hurricane Usagi comes in and she and Mamoru vanish for some reason, and Naru and Kunzite have a REAL conversation.
What Does Nephrite Have Against Shoes Anyway April 11th, 2016 Makoto and Mamoru are exhausted, drained messes, and Mamoru's "skill" at aiming teleports doesn't help. Nephrite is also a mess, in a completely different and much, much angrier way. Kunzite helps pick up some of the pieces -- in Mamoru's case, literally -- and they manage to put together something like a plan. 'Collapse now' is actually a plan, right? (Immediately post Sub Rosa.)
Rumor Mill April 18th, 2016 After the fight with Riventon, Kukai goes back to Mamoru's place with him and Kunzite, plays videogames, drinks coffee, fills Mamoru in on some Seiyou dirt on request, asks Kunzite questions that basically no one ever asks him because he is completely fearless, and eventually comes away with some absolutely fascinating grist for the mill.
Mechanisms April 27th, 2016 Kunzite has information for Ami. Ami has a housewarming present for the boys. Makoto has second thoughts on ever listening to Ami and Kunzite talk business again...

You And A Blueberry Muffin May 1st, 2016 Makoto and Kunzite catch Nephrite up on what he's missed, particularly re Fiore. Mamoru helps. Sort of. Makoto is learning all kinds of things today...
Tell Him to Stop May 3rd, 2016 Mamoru's worried. Zoisite's annoyed. Kunzite thinks they're both adorable. The one who'd be pleased with the word 'adorable' is unfortunately still mad at him.
Stop Attracting World-Ending Stalkers May 6th, 2016 Hannah objects to Mamoru apparently blowing up her warehouse. Kunzite and Makoto object to Hannah objecting to Mamoru. Mamoru objects to being awake.
Painted Foliage is Safe May 6th, 2016 Naru drops by to give stuff to Kunzite, and Mamoru... hires her?
Quis Proditores Ipsos Prodit May 9th, 2016 So Fiore had been slowly killing Usagi with an energy-drain youma like he did with Mako. Mamoru and Kunzite show up at like literally just-in-time o'clock and then Fiore shows up at who-said-you-could-interrupt o'clock and then the Senshi show up at are-you-freaking-kidding-me o'clock and Fiore is dismayed because the last rose Mamoru gave him wasn't actually stabbed into his chest, but like, things change. Also: wherein Kunzite's hair gets really short. (Technically in Mamoru's temporary apartment.)
A Smile Or A Curse May 12th, 2016 Kyouko has issues with Kunzite's new hairstyle. Fair enough; so does Kunzite. She's also having issues with identity, expectations, self-imposed restrictions. Fair enough; so is Kunzite. It's probably a good idea not to wonder if this counts as lighting any kind of fuse.
The Return Of Mahou Grand Central May 12th, 2016 In which Naru, Makoto, and Daisuke all independently decide to visit Mamoru's place. At the same time. LOTS of talking ensues.
Beer and Satori May 13th, 2016 Kyouko and Luna come to visit Mamoru with beer and wisdom. Luna doesn't like the beer.
At Home With the Celestials May 15th, 2016 Kukai comes over to visit and thank Kunzite for coming to visit him in the hospital, and finds Usagi cuddling sick Mamoru. Between Usa's contact and Kunzite's concentration, Mamoru remains in the conversation.
For No Other Reason May 18th, 2016 Makoto goes up to find that Nephrite has set up shop on the roof of Mamoru's building. The two of them discuss astrology, recent stresses, interior decorating, and whether or not they need excuses to see each other. (Hint: no.)
Bad Decisions And Worse Voice Mail May 28th, 2016 Mamoru decides that barely-standing is a fine condition in which to try to bodily fling himself across the city to demand answers from Hannah about Takashi. Usagi decides that it's a great time to descend on Mamoru's apartment wailing about having betrayed him. Kunzite decides it's a reasonable time to go home and WHY ARE PEOPLE SUDDENLY WEEPING ON HIM
When it Rains... May 31st, 2016 Kyouko returns from an absence to inform Kunzite and Mamoru about yet another problem which has dire implications, which is exactly what nobody needed to hear right now.
Thank You For Healing Him June 8th, 2016 Fiore, dying, teleports himself and Momo and Jupiter to Mamoru's apartment. Kunzite calls Daisuke in to help, and Mamoru helps Daisuke, and the Xenian 'helps' everyone have a really horrible day.
Cookies, Carpets, and Calculations June 8th, 2016 Kunzite calls Ami over to get a sample of alien blood. Ami does something more alien: asking for help.
Distraction June 8th, 2016 Nephrite's on guard duty the day Mamoru has to give up on the palaces and go be sick at home. He has some interesting questions about Kunzite, and Mamoru has some even more interesting reactions.
Renewed Purpose June 9th, 2016 Kyouko awakens after being unconscious due to her battle with Fiore, and has a talk with Kunzite.
Answer For Your Crimes June 9th, 2016 Nephrite has a GREAT PLAN to get intel on Fiore's asteroid! ... Fiore ... does not approve.
Death Is Just So Full and Man So Small June 9th, 2016 Jupiter finds Nephrite being put back together from near-death after his attempt to trick Fiore. Kunzite and Mamoru don't make her any less angry about this. The eternal lesson: don't get emotionally attached, they'll only wind up teleporting into space into a tuxedo.
Twinkle lights and paint and questions. June 10th, 2016 Conversations about communication, powersets, encryption, information gathering and the wisdom of indoor waterfalls.
Reasons To Hate This Weekend June 11th, 2016 Ami Mizuno may possibly be having the worst weekend of her life. Kunzite and Mamoru 'help.'
Conservation of Puella June 12th, 2016 Kyouko and Momo, after the fight with Riventon and Elsa Maria, head to Mamoru's apartment for healing that won't eat their souls and therefore their dwindling supply of grief seeds. Mamoru isn't there. Kunzite is, and about thirty seconds later, so is Daisuke...
Pirates of the Silver Crystal June 13th, 2016 Usagi comes over a spitting cobra and ends up in a sleepoveresque movie marathon. With Kunzite. ONLY USAGI.
No Weapons In The Living Room June 16th, 2016 (Content warning: teenage boys.) Nephrite and Mamoru are both sidelined for medical reasons. Kunzite is stuck watching them. In such conditions, one's essential nature is revealed! By which we mean they're all jerks.
Plant Your Hope in Good Soil June 17th, 2016 Usagi sneaks over to put Mamoru's hand in a jar of faintly glowing ginzuishou-magicked dirt. Inevitably, he wakes up hella confused. Equally inevitably, they are eye-wateringly adorable.

Reap the Whirlwind June 23rd, 2016 Makoto is on a mission: to save herself and Nephrite from an endless cycle of duty and death. Makoto is on a mission: to stop herself from doing just that. Riventon is on a mission: science. And Mamoru's apartment is now on fire.
Knight of Comfort June 23rd, 2016 The storm has passed, but the damage remains. Good thing Makoto has Nephrite to lean on. Follows 'Reap the Whirlwind.'
Grasp the Thorns June 24th, 2016 (Content warning: violence.) There's only one person Fiore wants to preserve from the end of the Earth. Kunzite tries to stop, or at least slow, the kidnapping. Usagi arrives in time to help save someone ... but it's not Mamoru.
Bigger Pictures June 24th, 2016 Naru and Kunzite talk about Ragemako. And Takashi. And the Xenian flowers. And dark energy. And long-term plans. And art. And decoration. But mostly, though they rarely say a word about it directly, about isolation and connection.
Bleeding on the Princess June 24th, 2016 (Content warning: gore.) Immediately following Grasp the Thorns: Usagi did arrive in time to save Mamoru from Fiore, not at once. But she did make it in time to save Kunzite.
Post-apocolyptic Open House, with pizza. June 27th, 2016 The Frat House is once again, Grand Central Station with pizza and coffee (and 'special' coffee) and laughter and panic and people and yet more food. Now with more random napping!

Intervention July 12th, 2016 Is Naru secretly a Chara Guardian? Has she considered opening up her life to magic? Or perhaps people are just hopeful on her behalf and try to sniff it out. Also, teeny tiny tea party.
Questions, But No Sock Youma July 14th, 2016 Naru stops by the ECFH. Mamoru and Kunzite answer some questions about drains and Devices, before Naru mentions oh, hey, this woman came over asking about Kazuo...
Sometimes These Things Just Happen July 18th, 2016 Makoto talks with Kunzite about what happened to her parents, and about the questions her Nullheart raised. Maybe it's just chance. Maybe not. But she's chosen to find out.

The Great Plushie Conspiracy July 23rd, 2016 Homura and Madoka visit with Kunzite at Mamoru's apartment to discus Wraiths, potential interactions between Puella Magi's and Kunzite's powers, and Naru's condition. And absolutely nothing else. No, really. No peeking!
pix or it didnt happen July 27th, 2016 Three injuries and some dark energy put Rei in the slightly awkward position of dealing with Mamoru. Solution? Texting. While in the same room. Meanwhile, Kyouko explains (some of) her

Folgers crystals, anyone?

Initially they talk on the roof of Infinity so Mamoru can watch the Perseid meteor shower, but they run into Setsuna Meioh! Mamoru promises to come back and watch the next night there, maybe with Nephrite too, and then Kyou and Mamo go to have the rest of the conversation on the ECFH roof. It gets... really heavy. And has a happy ending!
But I Clean Her LITTERBOX! August 17th, 2016 When he started to follow Mamoru, Kenji Tsukino wasn't expecting to find the impossible house. Or the loooooong staircase in the house. Or finding not!Wonderland in the basement. Or finding out his daughter is Sailor Moon and the boy is Tuxedo Kamen. Or that he changes the litter box belonging to a talking cat. (Yeah, let's focus on that last one.)

Prodigy, Puella-Style August 18th, 2016 Momo has some questions about Kyouko's deal with Mamoru. They are not what Kunzite at first thinks they are. Never, never, never underestimate a Puella contract. Or the Puella. Especially the Puella.
Hot Rocks, Lemon Muffins August 19th, 2016 Kunzite has someone waiting for him when he gets home from his morning run. This rapidly becomes multiple someones, including someone with MUFFINS!

Cream puffs, inappropriate giggling, a near-miss, future date plans, and some serious heart-to-heart about differing approaches to family situations. (Follows/concurrent with 'Routine Home Lies'.)
Prospective In-Laws August 24th, 2016 Kenji Knows. And he is, reluctantly, willing to share what he knows about the accident twelve years ago with Mamoru and his allies. The problem is, the ally he has to hand it over to is Kazuo Takeba, and it's hard trying to talk with someone who might as well be a different species...
Memorybeans August 27th, 2016 Mamoru brings Neph his jar of memories with a gentle ultimatum and a slew of solutions. Nephrite is unhappy about this.
Balcony wins August 28th, 2016 When the actual residents of ECFH are out, the visitors take over the balcony for chatter about stupidty, school and fighting. (And no doubt keeping Fiorerose from sleeping).

Would the guys be willing to help Makoto go through some of her parents' papers? Yes, they would. Would Makoto be willing to support Nephrite if he has trouble coping with ASK ANOTHER STUPID QUESTION, KUNZITE, THE ANSWER WAS NOT QUITE OBVIOUS ENOUGH THERE
What's In a Name September 2nd, 2016 Turns out, kind of a lot.
Investments September 5th, 2016 Makoto, Naru, and Kyouko discuss the virtues of being prepared, where 'being prepared' may or may not mean beating the crap out of each other on a once-weekly basis.
Congratulations Are In Order September 6th, 2016 And Madoka is going to make sure Kyouko gets them. No, not with snacks! ...though there are snacks.
Texts From Last Nope September 7th, 2016 Warning: Alcohol, late-teen mistakes. Zoisite attends the wrong party, drinks the wrong punch, and inevitably sends the wrong text. Then flees to Naru for sanctuary. Naru escorts him home and drops him on Mamoru and Kunzite to sort out the entire text mess, which is Not Her Problem.

Dinosaur Brownies October 30th, 2016 Kunzite and Naru encounter one another post-dance (and post Naru-Kyouko talk). There's some talk about sleep and monsters. Using Kunzite as one's scale of horror is really not useful, no.

The Thing With Shadows Is December 30th, 2016 Kyouko decides it's time to ask Kunzite if she's thinking straight. The problem with this is that Kunzite isn't so much worried about whether someone's thinking straight as whether the not-thinking-straight is functional. It sort of works anyway!

Where Does Minako Stand March 7th, 2017 Takes place before 'With Muffins, Obviously'. Minako comes over to talk to Mamoru once she's back in town again, and they both get at the truth before going downstairs to be like 'HEY KUNZITE, SURPRISE!' which is the best idea ever.

Leaving Scars April 27th, 2017 Sailor Mercury and Endymion combine her research (that is, her repurposing some of Lacrima's and Miss White's techniques, in combination with the Maze card) and his magic to give Alexis another chance at being a human being.

Children's Day May 5th, 2017 Kunzite's dad comes to visit the ECFH. This is both more and less disastrous than one might expect. But nobody dies! Or gets disowned! Or gets thrown off the balcony! Mako's cookies do, in fact, save a life.

Incident Analysis June 1st, 2017 Kyouko talks with Kazuo about her fight with Naru, and how to manage anger issues when they're interlinked with survival skills. Kazuo's personal answer is apparently 'practice on Nephrite.' They try for something that scales a little better.

Kunzite's Back and Koji's Moving June 20th, 2017 Like it says on the tin. Tall and white-haired has his soul back in (more or less in) his body! Koji's getting evicted. Usagi's adorable. Mamoru doesn't know how not to ruin Takara's good mood. Rashmi knows how to sort of fix it. Koji's parents are hilariously embarrassing. Mamoru will never tell. Kunzite gets catted.

(Content warning: discussion of nonconsensual contact.)
How Not To Deal With People July 21st, 2017 Tsubasa comes looking for social advice. From Kunzite. Unsurprisingly, two of the more socially and emotionally stunted magical people in Tokyo do not manage this conversation well.
Studying Seth via Sayaka-chan. July 21st, 2017 Seth is apparently a vampire now and she hasn't made another one since Alexis-kun. So she goes and talks to Sayaka-chan, who may know something.

She even gets to meet Endy's memory of Kunzite when he was actually 21!
